I recently threw the PortableApps suite on one of my USB sticks and I gave it to my wife to take to work with her so she'd be able to surf the sites that her work blocked and so she'd have her Firefox bookmarks with her wherever she went. I gave her a little tutorial on how to use the GetProxy app to figure out what the proxy was at her work and she did (PROXY:8080) and she applied the settings to Firefox but she still can't navigate to the restricted sites. At first I thought she was doing it all wrong but she sent me a screenshot that shows "Websense Enterprise" is restricting access to a large number of sites, like http://www.styledash.com.
Is there anyway around this? I searched the forum for workarounds but it seems only one other person has had a run-in with Websense, but they were successful in by-passing it. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
